Disclaimer: NOT YOUR BRUNCH SANGRIA 🍷 I think that’s what I’m going to call this drink! I often can’t get through all the wines I have open and I have found that the best way to utilize wine that has been open for a few days is to make a huge batch of SANGRIA 🍇💯 Like I stated though.. this is not a sangria for your casual Sunday brunch but rather your Friday night! 🕺 —————— About two coupes in and I had to tap out. 🤦‍♀️ Instead of soda water, (which brings down the Abv) I use bubbly. As a result this drink turns more into a martini than a sangria over ice 😜 . . . . 1.5 bottles of red wine (whatever you’ve got on hand) 1/3 cup Brandy 1/4 cup Grand Marnier 1 Lime quartered 1 Lemon quartered 1 Orange quartered 1 Apple sliced 4 tbls Brown Sugar 3/4 cup fresh orange juice Bubbly - preferably prosecco Serve up with fruit to garnish . . .

A perfect Saturday for me looks a lot like this... —————— Along with wine, I’m big on changing the stigma behind the pit bull breeds. Javier is the sweetest little rescue in the world. That being said, we have to talk often about how even though I think he is the cutest, when he jumps and growls at other people’s dogs, they get nervous 😬 These breeds make great pets, but if I said Javi was a easy dog to own, I would be lying. But difficult to own or not, every dog and animal deserves a happy home 🏡 #rescuedismyfavoritebreed —————— CHEERS FRIENDS 🥂

Historically, this was an important winemaking step to lower champagne’s characteristically high acid levels. For those who employed it (most), it also contributed another layer of flavor to the finished product. However, global warming, which is resulting in lower acid levels in the grapes at harvest, are making winemakers re-think this step.⁠ ⁠ Several months pass between base wine production and assemblage (blending). During this period, the base wines are stored in neutral holding vessels or oak and are usually aged on top of their fine lees. Sometimes lees stirring (bâtonnage) is practiced.⁠ ⁠ Lees contact, bâtonnage and oak aging (whether new or used) serve to add additional layers of flavor and texture to the base wines.⁠ ⁠ 📝 Let me know your thoughts in a comment⁠ 📨 Share this with your friends⁠ ⁠ __⁣⁠____⁠ 📸 by © Sommelier-Academy.de⁣⁠ Follow Sommelier_Academy.de⁣⁠ Tag #SommelierAcademy⁠ __⁣⁠____⁠ ⁠ #MasterOfWine #WineLearning #Wineprofessional #WineScholar #WineAddiction #Winefacts #CertifiedSommelier #SommelierTraining #Winetraining #SommelierSchool #HappySomm #Weinakademie #Wineclass #WineInfluencer #WSET #ILoveWine #WinePassion #WineGeek #Wineblogger #WineEnthusiast #Winemaker #Weinliebe #Grapes #Wein ⁠ ⁠ 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗲𝘀:⁠ SamanthaSommelierWineRoksKonstantinBaumMWPerthWineGirlwinemasters.tv

We’re bringing back a heavily requested class this month: 𝐁𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐋𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐚 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐦 on Fri, Dec 13th from 8-9PM. There are only a few spots left so be quick to grab a seat by tapping the link in our bio! Class details below- A sip of wine is an intersection of art, science, and perception that can lead to information overload. If you've ever wondered "What should I be tasting?" or "How do I identify this flavor?" then this is the class for you. Taste the who, what, where, and why of a wine, and gain greater enjoyment and an ability to identify wines in blind tastings. Learn how to identify and categorize specific flavors, taste where and when in the vinification process they come from, and how the winemaker plays with perception to highlight those flavors. You'll come away from the class with a more informed palate and a greater enjoyment of wine. Photo capture by carolinesroadbook

The Thanksgiving Line- Up 🦃 —————— 1. Prosecco (prosecco bubbles are finer and more citrusy than other bubblies, making it a perfect mimosa mixer) 🍾 2. Chablis (crisp mineral driven Chardonnay from a region in France known for its fancy soils) ✨ 3. Gamay (a grape with naturally high acid and low tannin that pairs immensely well with a variety of foods ie Thanksgiving) 🍇 4.

Nov 29, 2019

Thankful for this tasty treat. 🍇 I have literally dreamed about tasting this wine... I’ve been in the industry for awhile now but I never have had an opportunity to try a bottle, until yesterday! 🍾 —————— Sassicaia (which means “area of many stones”) is a famous Super Tuscan Wine! Super Tuscans are wines made in Tuscany Italy, and made with non-native grape varietals 🍇 So... while Tuscany is known for the Sangiovese grape, “Supers” use typically more French varietals with sometimes native stuff mixed in. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc! 😋 —————— sassicaiawinery was one of the pioneers of the Super Tuscan craze and put Italy on the map for making wines with the same level of quality, as the French! 💯 —————— As one of my bucket list wines... I almost cried when I got to taste it 😱😭😂 so this year I’m going with that I’m grateful for wine haha HAPPY THANKSGIVING FRIENDS!

Nov 26, 2019

Best wines to pair with your Thanksgiving meal. CAVA BRUT ROSÉ- is our number one pick for Thanksgiving. The crisp acidity will cut through your creamy dishes liked mashed potatoes, stuffing, and casseroles. It also has enough body to pair with the turkey and it’s red fruit notes will compliment your cranberry dishes. ✨ PRIMITIVO- Zinfandel is the classic red wine pairing because it pairs perfectly with your turkey and cranberry sauces and a ham if you are going non traditional. It also won’t overpower your side dishes. ✨ GRAN CUVÉE- This wine pairs well for the same reasons as the Cava Brut Rosé, it also is great as an aperitif or with your dessert. Regardless of what you choose we hope you enjoy your meal! . . . . . . #verveimports #thanksgivingwinepairing #winetasting #thanksgivingdinner #feast #brutrosé #zinfandel #primitivo #brut #bubbly #youcansipwithus #wineinspires #winepassion #boutiquewine #winelifestyle #certifiedsommelier

I’m still ballin’ on a budget and I believe in the idea that it is not always the wine that sticks out in your mind, but where you were, who you were drinking with, and how happy you felt in that moment! 🤩 —————— In this moment, I was riding in a gondola in one of the prettiest areas in MN. I could have been drinking LA MARCA (a prosecco brand I will try to influence you all to move away from) and been happy 😂🥰✨ I hope you all have similar experiences... making memories so great, you actually forget about what’s in the glass🍷 . . .

Nov 24, 2019

𝗬𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗹𝘆 𝗪𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗩𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗩𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 Although growing grapes to make wine may be more glamorous than growing lettuce, it is important to remember that grape growing is still just a type of farming. Every growing season or vintage produces a different crop, depending upon climate and other factors associated with nature. Although viticulturists and winemakers strive for consistency, it remains true that nature directly influences the style of the wines produced from year to year, often with significant variations in quality. This is why vintages are often rated and discussed. It is important to learn which vintages are most highly-regarded — or problematic — in key regions. 𝗧𝗲𝗿𝗿𝗼𝗶𝗿 Terroir is a French concept, and a word that does not have a direct English translation. Terroir is the entire set of factors that influence the development of the vine's fruit and the characteristics the fruit will show once vinified. 𝗥𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗟𝗮𝘄 As we will discover in upcoming sections, many wine regions legislate which grapes can be grown. Additionally, the government or wine law may dictate how the grapes can be grown and even when they are picked. 𝗛𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 Special circumstances or important historical occurrences have partially determined which grapes are grown in certain regions, as well as the singular styles of wines for which they have become known. ________⁣ 📸 by © Sommelier-Academy.de⁣ Follow Sommelier_Academy.de⁣ Tag #SommelierAcademy ________⁣ #MasterOfWine #WineLearning #Wineprofessional #WineScholar #WineAddiction #Winefacts #CertifiedSommelier #SommelierTraining #Winetraining #SommelierSchool #HappySomm #Weinakademie #Wineclass #WineInfluencer #WSET #ILoveWine #WinePassion #WineGeek #Wineblogger #WineEnthusiast #Winemaker #Weinliebe #Grapes #Wein 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗲𝘀: wineterroir winewise_co wines_shyntiap winegrapestone winedownuk

A quick glimpse into my wonderland... visited another Minnesota winery recently and decided to bring y’all along 👌 —————— This time I traveled all the way on the North Shore of Lutsen, MN. It was my frst time in the area and after seeing the famous gooseberry falls and a couple other hikes we knew we couldn’t miss a trip to northshorewinerylutsen. This winery has a few hybrid, cold hardy varietals, and then their other wines are actually sourced from Lodi in California! 👍 —————— My favorite was their Boundary Waters Barbera Blend. Completed in stainless it was fresh, bright, and tasty! 😋 —————— Comment below if you’ve been to this winery, as well as ,what you thought was the most cringy moment of this vid: 1. My dancing 2. Jacie’s face of embarrassment 3. My green overalls 4. Barrel smacks 5. The amazing song choice 😆😂 Life’s too short to not get a little weird... 😉

Wine Wednesday: 🍾 Let’s highlight my seasonal sparkler. Days of Youth “The Diver” : Brut Bubbly —————— This is a bubbly produced in a Prosecco style (Charmat method is the technical term) which means that it makes bubbles in tank and they tend to be lighter and not as high in pressure as a Champagne! Which makes this a tasty, no fuss, bubbly. It is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Gewurtztraminer. 🍇 —————— Enjoy around the holidays as a little aperitif or drag it along on your travels to the North Shore! Haha 😆 I think every wine tastes best when consumed on a cliffside 💯 - Days of Youth, The Diver - Brut - Retails around $12-20

I had high hopes for this book, and aldosohm has beyond exceeded every one of them. The information is beautifully presented, concise when it needs to be, but full of so much of it. And the accompanying illustrations just enrich everything even more. Already recommending it to everyone I know 😂😂😂 - #somm #sommelier #certifiedsommelier #femalesommelier #winebooks #winebook #wine #vino #winestudy #theroadtoadvanced

𝗞𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱𝗴𝗲: 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗴𝗻𝗲 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐠𝐧𝐞 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐝 𝟐. 𝐇𝐚𝐫𝐯𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬 The grapes for Champagne production are intentionally picked with less sugar than grapes destined for still wine production. This is because alcohol is toxic to yeast. Champagne will undergo two alcoholic fermentations. If the grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, the vignerons will not be able to initiate a second fermentation because the alcohol levels will be too high for the yeasts initiating the second alcoholic fermentation to live. Yet, although the fruit is harvested with less sugar than for still wine production, the grapes must still be mature. Unripe grapes will yield green, unripe-tasting champagnes. The grapes are hand-harvested by law and cool, undamaged fruit is prized. Temperature is important because warm fruit bleeds pigment. The winemaker wants more control over the end product; hence cool fruit. ⁣ 𝗘𝘅𝘁𝗿𝗮 𝗕𝗿𝘂𝘁 𝗘𝘅𝘁𝗿𝗮 𝗢𝗹𝗱 𝗯𝘆 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗴𝗻𝗲 𝗩𝗲𝘂𝘃𝗲 𝗖𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗾𝘂𝗼𝘁 ________⁣ 📸 by © Sommelier-Academy.de⁣ Follow Sommelier_Academy.de⁣ Tag #SommelierAcademyGHMumm#Champagne #Chardonnay #PinotNoir #Meunier #MasterOfWine #WineLearning #Wineprofessional #WineScholar #WineAddiction #Winefacts #CertifiedSommelier #SommelierTraining #Winetraining #SommelierSchool #HappySomm #Weinakademie #Wineclass #WineInfluencer #WSET #ILoveWine #WinePassion #WineGeek #Wineblogger #WineEnthusiast #Winemaker #Weinliebe #Grapes #Wein 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗲𝘀:⁣ SparklingWinos TheWineAbout KellyMitchell LousGrandCrew almuanadon

And one year ago today; I was tasting my way through Temecula Valley, on the way to Las Vegas...🍷🥰 I had just finished two years working in Montana, studying wine under a wine nerd I greatly admire, and running a phenomenal wine program! Upon leaving I took a month to travel, seeing the entire western coastline, from Portland to San Diego, and then back to Minnesota! Within one year, it is crazy to think of how much my life has changed.... ✨ —————— One issue I have, is that I’m always pushing toward the next step or the next milestone and I forget to step back and reflect on how far I’ve come! I forget that at 19, I had pictured what it would be like as a sommelier and working with wine as a career.... and now I’m doing just that! I’m living what I love and I’ve gotten more opportunities to travel at my age than some people get in a lifetime! 👌 —————— While you have to keep moving and growing, there is strength in reflection, and I’m so grateful for every step I’ve taken and every glass I’ve sipped! 🍷 What experiences in the past are you grateful for??? Take some time to reflect today . . . Cheers friends and enjoy the Tuesday motivation 💯🥂

My favorite wine lineup so far this year. It was such an absolute privilege to meet edouardojordan of junebabyseattle and even moreso to talk about his dishes (and Andrew/Michael’s) in conjunction with the wine pairings. - If you think you don’t like pet nats — cyril.cuche Puech-Redon will change your mind. A touch of RS with blueberry and lavender and an underlying green earthiness. - Alleme’s Txakolina was my first introduction to the style/region. Effervescent and clean with notes of lime and plenty of minerality. - Georges Descombes Beaujolais may have ruined me for all others. Finessed and elegant with just the right balance of fruit to earth - vinopisador was a very special finish to the night. We love the wines of La Stoppa so it was great to experience her style in Chilean wines. Structured and earthy but with a touch of the greenness that is Chilean wines for me. - #somm #sommelier #certifiedsommelier #femalesommelier #wine #vino #sommlife #theroadtoadvanced

El domingo y lunes pasados, ni una semana ha transcurrido de que mi querido Joseph se convirtió por 3era vez en Mejor Sommelier de Perú. ¡Muchas felicidades bro! El esfuerzo y el estudio se han visto reflejados en este triunfo. Diego y Pedro, siéntanse orgullosos del gran papel que han hecho, son grandes profesionales y los éxitos seguirán llegando para ustedes. Agradecido me encuentro de poder participar como organizador; a Marc por llevarme, por confiar siempre en mi. A Jessie, Jonatan y en especial a Máximo, por su apoyo y aguantarme con todos los requerimientos y cosas que les solicité. A APAS y sus presidentes, por hacerme partícipe de este evento y de corazón, a Perú y su gente, me han hecho sentir como en casa. La Sommellerie es una gran familia mundial. ¡Salud! 🥂🍷 #Somm #Sommelier #Winelover #Sommlife #MexSomm #CertifiedSommelier #ASISomms #Sommeliers #SommPeru19 #APSOM #APAS #Friends

This time last year I was frolicking through Russian River Valley vines that had just started to turn yellow for fall... 🍁🍂 —————— There is something so romantic about vineyards and the subsequent wine that comes from them.... 🍷 —————— This exact vineyard was a wine I first tried, maybe a year earlier, and fell in love with.... it’s a whole different experience when you get to see where that bottle originated. That stuff will get you nerdy 🤓 —————— What wine was it??? merry_edwards_winery Sauvignon Blanc ✨

✏️ What the heck is a Sommelier these days? I’m always slightly amused trying to explain my recently acquired title to people who have never heard of a a Sommelier. Sommelier means different things to different people and with so many becoming certified lately, I feel as though the definition has gotten fuzzy. ⠀⠀ ✨Do you need to be a Certified Sommelier to be able to talk, teach about, and recommend wines to others? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -No. I’ve been mentored by plenty of educated wine lovers that had no certifications. However, just like having a degree makes you a better candidate for a job, I think having a certification proves your knowledge and that you are invested. 📚 ⠀⠀ ✨Do you need to work in a restaurant to be a Sommelier? (This one ruffles a lot of feathers.) -Also no. However, most do and many will argue that you should!🍾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️ What are your thoughts? How would you define Sommelier?? ⠀⠀ #sommelier #sommlife #winestudent #wineeducation #winecertification #certifiedsommelier
